The on-going liberalisation of the Indian economy and the world trade as well as rising consumer prosperity has thrown up new opportunities in the food processing sector. Growing at a rate of 14% since the last few years, the Indian Food Processing Industry has reached a stage of maturity where adopting state of art technologies have become imperative to meet the quantitative and qualitative challenges. The government incentives and consumer preferences are driving the food processors to invest in several new and expansion projects.

As the industry lines up large investments in world class technologies, the All India Food Processors Association (AIFPA) in partnership with Print-Packaging.com (P) Limited (PCPL) have mooted the Food Technology Show 2010 to provide a platform to the leading technology providers to showcase their offerings. The show will be held in a separate hall at the PackPlus 2010 exhibition as a part of the iconic event from 3-6 December at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.

The show will be a spectrum of world class technologies and will bring together the decision makers, entrepreneurs and technologists in the food processing and packaging sector in direct contact with the world class suppliers of food processing & ancillary equipment and integrated packaging lines.

Leading technology providers from all over the world including Italy, Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, France, USA, Canada, Turkey, Japan, South Korea, China, Spain and Taiwan besides the best Indian companies will exhibit.

The annual PackAge Conference that is traditionally held along with Pack Plus exhibition, this year will focus on ‘Latest Developments in Package Converting Technologies & Integrated Food Processing & Packaging.’

“AIFPA is one of the oldest association in the sector is fully geared up to work with government, academia, farmers, consumer bodies and more importantly technology partners like Print-Packaging.Com to ensure that the food processing sector is part of the government agenda for inclusive growth for India,” said Peruz Khambata, underlining the importance that the association attaches to the show.

“Today, when the latest technologies ensures that the processing and packaging are seamlessly integrated in a single manufacturing line, having the Food Technology Show at Pack Plus 2010 will give a lot of added value to the visitors from the food industry, that form the largest segment of the attendees to the annual event,” said Anil Arora, President, PCPL.

The Show is supported by The Ministry of Food Processing Industries (MOFPI) and Agricultural & Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA).
